Careful, I am NOT sharing the corner I'm sitting in. You'll have to find your own.  ;D

Looks like the Army formerly known as, 'Japs' are getting a good beat-down Airboy. ConJAPS on a great campaign so far.  :clap:

The Battle of the Philippines is over with a US Victory 25 turns early (with a 50 turn deadline)!

A shocking revelation was made about General Wrigley's forced retirement by Pentagon enemies.

Part 1 of Scenario 11: Okinawa

Below is a link to my strategy and the results of the first three turns.  I plan to finish this scenario and the invasion of Japan (the last scenario in this campaign) before the end of the year.

https://averysgameblog.wordpress.com/2019/10/15/order-of-battle-ww2-us-navy-campaign-scenario-11-okinawa/


I did not update the game blog for three months for all sorts of reasons.  This is a hobby and not a job.  My wife and I went on a two week transatlantic cruise.  But most importantly my wife suddenly went 100% deaf in one ear and had vertigo for several days.  The hearing loss is permanent and nothing can be done.  This is a mystery to medical science. 

Because of my extensive training and knowledge of statistics including medical statistics, I read the summary literature on her problem.  She got the right treatment very fast.  But this problem is one of the hardest to set up a medical study for that I've ever seen - a thought shared by three different physicians including two specialists. 

She will never be able to tell the direction of sound again.  She has great difficulty understanding people talking if there is much background noise.  Our days of going to concerts is over and she needs to avoid anything that can damage her good ear so she will not be pulling clays for me shooting shotguns any longer.

Just one of those things that happens as people get older and there are a lot of things that could be worse.

I'm sorry about your wife's hearing loss. But you are right, such incidents can also make you grateful for your many blessings.

Loved your AAR Avery and I too am so sorry to learn of your wife's diagnosis. You certainly couldn't have gotten on it any earlier. Maybe somehow Medical Science can learn from her loss and advance the fight to prevent/cure this in the future. My own wife suffers from a buzzing sound in one ear which began after she dove into our pool to impress the grandkids. She felt something in her inner ear and when she came back up, it's been there ever since. Doctors can't do anything to fix it so she suffers. Like you say, part of getting old I guess. I told her it was God's way of sparing her from having to listening me all the time.
